Front-end Forms for Adding Content

With Toolset Forms, users can create content from your website’s front-end.

Creating the form

Go to the Toolset → Post Forms page and click the Add New button at the top. A wizard will guide you through the steps.

First, you need to give your form a name.

In the next step, you need to select the main form options. This includes selecting a post type, status of the post created by the form, and other.

  2. Available form fields and elements

Based on the post type, you will see that some fields were already added to your form. You can delete and reorder fields. You cannot delete mandatory form fields and you will see a lock icon next to them. To add elements to your form simply drag-and-drop them to the desired location.

When you are done, click Continue to proceed to the final step.

Displaying Toolset forms

To display Toolset forms on the front-end, use the Toolset Form block. You can insert it into any WordPress content including pages, posts, and templates.
